The Mondeo ECOnetic is fitted with the latest innovations in fuel efficiency. Equipped with a gearshift indicator, and a longer final gear with a low coefficient of friction, all the elements were there for this record. The Focus ECOnetic also features the Auto-Start-Stop allowing it, among other innovations to achieve an average CO2 emission of 114 g/km.
